ANT 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Anthropology of Collective Memory

4 credits (Spring)
This course addresses collective memory from theoretical and ethnographic perspectives. It locates memory in the social world, in the relevance of the past for the present, and in on-going struggles to represent and commemorate meaningful histories. Particular attention will be paid to objectified notions of language and the constitutive function of discourse in  memory-making projects. This course includes travel to Ireland and Northern Ireland to engage ethnographically with course topics and themes. Students planning to participate in the course-embedded travel component of this course, will be required to pay a $400 participation fee (most other required travel expenses will be covered). This fee will be payable at the Cashier’s Office, by cash or check, and will be due by January 29, 2016. If payment of this fee causes you financial concern, please contact Gretchen Zimmermann in the Financial Aid Office to discuss loan options to cover this additional cost for attendance.
